Introduction to Information Literacy for Hong Kong Students

 

Information technology (IT) is a powerful tool to unleash the learning capability of students. With the advancement of technology and its application through innovative pedagogies in all KLAs, students’ capability in information literacy (IL), self-directed learning and other 21st century skills such as creativity, problem solving skills, collaboration skills and computational thinking skills are enhanced. Strategies on IT in Education are formulated at various stages to enable students to learn and excel through realising the potential of IT in enhancing interactive learning and teaching experiences.

 

As an important competency, IT helps students identify the need for information; locate, evaluate, extract, organise and present information; create new ideas; cope with the dynamics in our information world; use information ethically as well as refrain from immoral practices such as cyber bullying and infringing intellectual property rights. IL could be developed through the application of the generic skills in the context of handling information in different media in our information world. This also involves various knowledge contexts and has close linkage with the KLAs.

 

Schools can make reference to the "Information Literacy for Hong Kong Students" for suggestions on how to develop students’ knowledge, skills and attitudes to use information and information technology ethically and effectively as responsible citizens and lifelong learners. Incorporation of IL in the whole-school curriculum will provide authentic contexts for students to apply the skills and benefit their learning in relevant KLAs.
